Almond Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies have crackled tops, soft centers and taste just as good as regular chocolate chip cookies.

Servings 12 cookies


  • Stand Mixer with the Paddle Attachment


  • 1 stick Unsalted butter Also equal to 8 tablespoons or 4 oz.
  • cup Brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ cup + 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 large Egg
  • 2 ⅓ cup Almond flour
  • ½ t. Baking soda
  • ¼ t. Kosher Salt
  • 1 ¼ cup Semisweet Chocolate Chips


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a sheet pan with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Cream butter, brown sugar and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy - approximately three minutes.
  • Add the egg and beat until incorporated, scraping the bowl when necessary.
  • Add almond flour, baking soda, and salt to mixture and beat on low until cookie dough forms - scraping the bowl to make sure all is incorporated.
  • Fold or beat in the chocolate chips.
  • Using a medium sized portion scoop, scoop 6 cookies onto a pan and bake until the edges are golden brown - approximately 13 minutes for big cookies.


If you are making smaller cookies adjust the time as necessary. When I used a smaller scoop I only baked the cookies for 11 minutes.
